The immense impact of a car accident can leave you with very serious injuries that require ongoing care and that often lead to secondary health concerns.
A broken bone is an exceptionally painful injury that is slow to heal and vulnerable to complications. A complicated break can require multiple surgeries, and if the break does not heal correctly, it can lead to chronic pain and even to permanent physical limitations.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are generally caused by a blow to the head, neck, or shoulders, and they are very common in serious car accidents. TBIs are closely associated with psychological and emotional side effects that victims often describe as causing an altered sense of self, which is an especially difficult hurdle to clear.
Even a relatively minor spinal cord injury can lead to a lifetime of lingering pain. These injuries can occur anywhere on the spinal cord, and if the cord is severed, the consequences are permanent paralysis and a lifetime of healthcare needs.
Burns are some of the most painful injuries, and they are also some of the most dangerous. Burns are especially susceptible to dangerous infections, and when they are on or near the face can permanently disfigure their victims.
Your car accident claim can address your losses in terms of damages, which tend to be grouped into specific categories, including:
Addressing the complete range of damages in your car accident claim is critical to your ability to reach your fullest recovery, and an experienced car accident attorney can help.
Car accidents are generally caused by driver negligence, which can come in any of the following life-threatening forms:
Proving the other driver’s negligence can be a complicated task, which is yet another reason why having a dedicated car accident attorney in your corner is well advised.
If you’ve been seriously injured by another driver’s negligence, you will be addressing the matter with the other driver’s insurance provider. And while it is true that the insurance company is paid specifically to cover your losses, it is a for-profit enterprise that is very invested in keeping its profits as high as possible, which means it is invested in keeping your settlement as low as possible. There are a variety of practices that insurance companies commonly employ.
The insurance company might offer you an early settlement that does not even come close to covering you complete damages but that you are, nevertheless, tempted to accept out of financial desperation.
The insurance company might simply deny your claim outright – not because your claim isn’t viable but because the insurance company is hoping that you will give up.
Often, the insurance company will make the claims process so complicated and protracted that claimants like you walk away in frustration.
The insurance company may attempt to shift the blame away from their own client – the at-fault driver who left you injured – and toward you. The stress and shock of the car accident is likely to leave you especially vulnerable – and open to suggestion – and the insurance company is not above playing on your vulnerabilities.
